About the restaurant

The restaurant is located in the historic center of the city — on the spacious Suvorov Avenue. Large windows of the restaurant provide a fantastic view of the picturesque Tavricheskaya Street. Francesco is the place where guests find themselves in a vintage Italian family house with antique wooden furniture - as if gathered together from around the world — comfy sofas with a history, grandfather's buffets and antique chandeliers of colossal size.

Chef Giuseppe Priolo compiled the menu exclusively from dishes based on original family recipes, brought from the sunny Italy. There are nine kinds of dishes and an extensive wine list. The menu is updated daily with new treats.
